Bruce W. Cunnigham is Retiring...

For the next week the Office of the University Registrar celebrates the career of Dr. Bruce W. Cunningham, Assistant Vice Provost and University Registrar.  Bruce has worked in higher education since 1983 and is retiring on Friday, August 28, 2015.  He arrived at Duke in 1996 to serve as the University Registrar and Project Manager for the Student Administration System Implementation (PeopleSoft - ACES/STORM).  He has served in his present capacity since 2007.  Bruce has represented Duke and held executive leadership positions in the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), Association of American Universities Registrars (AAU Registrars), and Southern Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (SACRAO).

Bruce, the staff in the OUR thanks you for your tireless effort to improve the educational experience for students and the work experience for faculty and staff.  We particulary appreciate your leadership, sense of humor, and making the time that we all spend together each workday both positive and enjoyable.

We wish you and Carol all of the positive possibilities that retirement can bring.  Enjoy it.  You've earned it!
